Broadway Season in Indianapolis Kicks Off with Mamma Mia!

Broadway-Indy-Mamma-Mia#Indianapolis – Broadway season in Indianapolis kicked off this weekend with an amazing performance of Mamma Mia! I saw the show at Clowes Memorial Hall on opening night with my husband. It was beautiful, delightful, and quite a challenge not to singalong at full volume. ABBA is probably one of the most fun musical soundtracks to sing.

There is pretty much nothing about Mamma Mia! that I didn’t absolutely love. The costumes were incredible, the storyline is fun, and the music is amazing. My inner dancing queen was out in full force — especially during the epic, 15-minute encore. It has to be the greatest finale I’ve ever seen on stage.

Broadway-Indy-SeasonIt was the perfect start to an incredible season lineup. The next show is also at Clowes Memorial — the teen is crazy excited to see Elf the Musical in December. It’s part of the 5-show season ticket option, along with several other family-friendly productions.

It’s one of the most kid-friendly seasons I’ve ever seen. Even Mamma Mia!, save for a few mild innuendos, would have been fun for our kids. I definitely liked it better as a date night, but I’ll be taking a child with me for most of the season.
